### Coarse moduli spaces of quotient stacks

Suppose you have a separated Deligne Mumford quotient stack $[V/G]$ over a field of characteristic $0$, where $V$ is a quasiprojective variety and $G$ is an algebraic group that does not necessarily ...

### Normalization of quotient stacks

Suppose you have a Deligne Mumford stack which is a quotient $[X/G]$ of a scheme $X$ by an algebraic group $G$ . What is the normalization of that? Is it true that its normalization is a quotient ...

### Kähler quotients of affine varieties and GIT

Let $X\subseteq \Bbb C^n$ be a smooth affine variety and $G=K_{\Bbb C}$ a complex reductive group acting linearly on $\Bbb C^n$ preserving $X$ (where $K$ is a maximal compact subgroup of $G$). Suppose ...

### Scaling-Invariant Orbits of Semisimple Group Representations

Let $G$ be a connected, simply-connected complex semisimple linear algebraic group, and let $V$ be a finite-dimensional complex $G$-module. Note that if $V$ is the adjoint representation of $G$, then ...

### Choosing a group action to do GIT of hypersurfaces

When studying GIT stability of hypersurfaces $d$ of $\mathbb P^n$ we look at the Hilbert Scheme $H=\mathbb P^N$ parametrizing homogeneous polynomials $f_d(x_0,\ldots,x_n)$ of degree $d$. There is ...

### A quotient stack question

Let $X$ be a proper Deligne-Mumford stack, whose normalization, $X'$, is a global quotient stack (that is, a stack of the form [W/GL_n],where W is an algebraic space) with a projective scheme as a ...

### From algebraic group actions to group scheme actions

I am trying to understand the basic results of geometric invariant theory. I want to pull off the band aid and use Mumford, but am a neophyte with respect to scheme theory. Thus, I have been trying to ...

### Level n-structure as defined by Mumford in GIT

In Mumford's GIT, the definition of level $n$ structure ($n \geq 2)$ is $2g$ sections $\{\sigma_1, \dots, \sigma_{2g}\} : S \rightarrow A$ such that two conditions hold: (i) For geometric points the ...

### A simple problem on commutative algebra related to G.I.T

Let $G$ be a geometrically reductive algebraic group over an algebraically closed field $k$. Let $X$ be an affine variety over $k$ on which $G$ acts regularly. Then $G$ acts on the coordinate ring $A$ ...

### Quotient of variety by additive group separated?

I have some sub variety of a complex flag variety and I want to take the quotient by a free action of $\mathbb{C}$. I know that this quotient exists locally as a variety. My question is whether there ...
### GIT: For $x$ fixed, is $\{L:x \in X^s(L)\}$ open in $\text{Pic}^G(L)$?
Let $G$ be a complex reductive algebraic group acting on a complex variety $X$ (not necessarily projective) with $\text{Pic}^G(X)$ finite dimensional (for simplicity). For a fixed $x \in X$ define P^...
